little over three months.
In accordance with a suggestion of
Her Excellency Lady Aberdeen, we
held a public meeting in Donald on the
Sllst of January, with a view to forming a Local Council. It was unanimously decided that one be formed,
and officers were elected with Mrs.
Molson Spragge as President.

The Council has endeavored to
originate some movements of practical
utility, and the following will, we
trust, mature:���A Private School, A
New Hospital, and "Tbe Pioneer Circle" of the King's Daughters. The
former is a pressing necessity, as the
public school is altogether unsuitable
for children of tender years. The
Council is in correspondence with a
view to engaging a teacher. A new
hospital is also urgently required, as
the existing C.P.R. Hospital does not
provide any accommodation for women,
nor has it any modern requirements.
The Local Council has established a
branch of "The Pioneer Circle" of
the King's Daughters, whicli, though
just started, seems to meet with great

IIo Fixed Horrible Crimes on a Ccle-
lirittod London Physician.
The story recently told by Dr. Howard, a well-known London physician,
to William Greer Harrison of the Bohemia club in Sun Francisco, in regard
to the fate of Jack the Ripper, unseals
the lips of a gentleman in Chicago,
who is enaliled to give a full account
of that exhaustive search by tho London detectives, which, at the conclusion of a year's unremitting labor, resulted in fixing tho ideuity of the infamous Whitechapel murderer beyond
the shadow of a doubt.
The Doctor Howard referred to wns
one of a dozen London jihysicinns who
sat ns u court of medical inquiry nr a
commission in lunacy upon their brother physician, for at last it -vas definitely proved that, tho dreaded "Jack
the R ipper" was no less u person than
n physician iu high standing living in
the west end of London. When it was
absolutely proved beyond preiidventurc
that the physician in question was the
murderer, and his insanity fully established by a commission de luutitico
inquirendo, all parties having knowledge of tho facts wero sworn to
Up to tho timo time of Dr. Howard's
disclosure this oath had been rigidly
adhered to. A London clubman now
in Chicago, who is acquainted with
Dr. Howard, is of the opinion that being iu a foreign country and, perhaps,
under the inHuetice of wine, Dr. Howard has permitted his tongue to wag
too freely.
The guilty physician hail a passion
for inflicting pain on animals of every
sort. He had scarcely lieen married a
month beforo his wife discovered this
mania, in testifying before tho commission she gave the following extraordinary evidence:
"One night wo were sitting in the
drawing-room quite lute. I arose to
go to liod. When I arrived up stairs
I remembered I had left my watch up-
on the drawing-room uiun'.lepieee. I
descended the stairs As I approached
the drawing room 1 beard ihe sounds
of a cut mewing piteously. Looking
through the door I wns horrified to see
my husband holding the cat over the
fliinin of u moderator lamp, I was too
frightened to do anything but retreat
up stairs. I discovered inter rlt.tr lie
had spent almost the entire night
burning thn cat to death.
"It wus quite possible for nie, as I
studied him closely, to tell it lieu these
moods wero coming on. On such uc-
cassiens some apparently trivial act
would put me on my guard. In his
normal moods he was au excellent
husband and father and one of tbe
gentlest nnd most tractable ol men."
Robert James Lees is the gentleman
to whom the unfortunates of the east,
end of London owe their present immunity from attacks of the Ripper.
Lees is at present the proprietor of a
novel institution for tlin higher education of workiiigiiien at I'eckhnm, a
suburb of London, and resides at 26,
the Gardens, Peckham Rye, London,
ribly with a large knife.
So Impressed was he by the vision
that ho at. onco wont to Scotland Yard
and detailed the whole matter to the
detectives. By way ol humoring one
whom they considered as a harmless
lunatic, the sergeant on duty took
down tho name of the place w here Lees
said the crime would be committed
and also noted that the clock in a mythical public house had pointed to 12:40
o'clock at the moment when the Ripper und his victim had entered the
At 12:30 o'clock the following night
n woman entered a public house facing
the court in question. She was quite
under the influence ol liquor and the
barkeeper refused to serve her. She
left the place nnd was seen by another
witness to enter the court again at
12:30 o'clock in company with a man
dressed in a dark suit and currying
a light overcoat on his arm. This
was in evidence given before the deputy
coronor, who held the inquest on the
body of the woman, wh) had been
found in tlio very spot described by
Lees, "with her throat cut irom ear to
ear, and otherwise indecontly and horribly mutilated"���to quote from the
coronor's records.
Lees himself was indescribably
shocked when he learned of the murder next day, nnd removed with Itis
family to the continent. While he
was abroad tho Ripper committed
four more murders, but Lees had no
visions regarding them. Later Lees
returned to London, and one day while
riding in an omnibus he experienced u
renewal of his strange sensations.
Thc omnibus ascended Nottinghill,
stopping at tho top, where a man entered. Lees at once experienced a singular sensation. Looking up he perceived that the new passenger was a
man of medium size, dressed in a dark
suit of Scotch tweed, over which he
wore a light overcoat, He had a soft
felt hut on his head. Over a year had
elapsed since Lees' clurivoyant vision,
but tlio picture of the murdurer had
Wn indellibly impressed upon his
mind. To his wife he reirarketl earnestly. "That is Jack the Ripper."
His wife laughed and told him not
to be foolish. "I am not mistaken,"
replied Lees, "I feel it." Tho bus
tinning into Oxford street at Marble
Arch, the man in the light overcoat
got out. Lees followed the man down
I'nrk lane. On reaching Apsley
ilouso the man jumped into a cab and
was rapidly driven down Piccadilly.
That night I.ces again received premonitions that the Ripper was about
to commit another murder and hastened to Scotland Yard. Tlm bond in
[igpootor listened with u smile of incredulity until Lees told of tbe victim's
e.,1'8 being severed from her head.
At this tho inspector drew a postal
card from his desk and laid it before
his visitor. The card, written in red
ink, bore the marks ot two bloody fingers.   The card read as follows:
"Tomorrow night I shall again take
my revenge, claiming from the class
of women who have made themselves
most obnoxious to me my ninth victim."
Jack tub Ripper.
"P. S.-To prove that I am really
'Jack the Ripper' I will cut the ears
off the ninth victim."
While abroad the Ripper   completed
his sixteenth murder.
Shortly after that Loos returned to
England, where he made the acquaintance of Roland B. Shaw, a mining
stock broker of New York, and Fred
C. Beckwith of Broadhoad, Wisconsin,
who was then the financial promoter
of an Amoricau syndicate in London.
The three gentleman were dining one
day in the Criterion when Lees suddenly exclaimed: "Great God! Jack
the Ripper has committed another
Shaw looked at his watch and found
it was 7:49 o'clock. At 8:10 o'clock n
policeman discovered the body ot a
woman in Crown court with her throat
cut from ear to car, and her body bearing all the marks of the Ripper's handiwork.
After an earnest appeal from the inspector Lees consented to try and
track the Ripper, much in the same
way as a bloodhound | ursues a criminal. All that night Lees traversed
swiftly the streets of London. The
inspector and his aids followed a lew
feet behind. At lust, at 4 o'clock in
the morning, the human blood-hound
halted at the gates of a west end mansion. Pointing to an upper chamber
where a taint light gleamed, he said:
"Tliere is the murderer you aro looking for."
"It is impossible," retnened tho Inspector. "That is the resilience of une
of the most celebrated physicianh in
the west end; but, if you will describe
to me the interior of tho doctor's hull,
I will arrest him."
Lees gave the description without
hesitation. At seven o'clock they entered the house and found the room
just as described and learned that the
doctor wns still in bed.
After the examination referred to
above the Ripper was removed to a
private insane asylum in Islington,
and he is now the most intractable
dangerous madman confined in that
In order to account for the disappearance of the doctor from society a
sham death and burial were gone
through, and an empty coffin, which
now reposes in the family vault at
Kensal Green, is supposed to contain
the mortal remains of the great west
end physician, whose untimely death
all London mourned. At the asylum
the Ripper is simply known as Thomas
Mason, alias No. 124.

several times that ho would rather nurse
twins than care for oven n moderate
everyday sort of cold, to say nothing of
a genuine Georgian Bny cull. It must
bo considered In this connection, however, tliut tlio professor was out of temper, uinl that ho had never had any ex*
|.jflence with twins: therefore wo are
���nit bound to accept bin opinion iu this
respect without question,
The point to bu buruo in mind is the
fact that he was nursing tht, cold, nnd
that while ho was in the act uf doing it,
Dr. Sqnibob came to trail on him. It
was not a professiuuiil cull, mado under
tho protection of tho great soul of a
medical college at so many dollars a
visit, medicines extra, but n cull induced in part by friendship and in part
by curiosity. It was uiade because lho
tli etor felt in a measure responsible fur
the cold, and feared ovil consequences
f-'om the rival doctor across the sirsot
i.e suspected tho rival of u weakness
Inward hut baths and littlo pills, so
1 in re was a little harmless guile mingled
with tuo char,ty of his morning cull.
He ft It responsible for tho professor's
ml 1. because it was taken in the course
i f an experiment suggested to him hy
tne doctor. Ho wus always suggesting
innielliing to tlie professor in the way
of an experiment, and promising to help
him to curry it out, and was always
being coiled away to visit some patient
ut the critical point in tho experiment,
inul this always resulted disastrously to
tlio professor; but, then, he never
chirged tho professor anything for pre-
i ciiptions. The present cold came in
lho course of some studios they wero
jointly eiignged ill, which necessitated
ihe use uf a large lH'irigeratiir. While
the professor was iubi.ie Ihe ref ir-erutor
mixing some strange und new and bad-
sniulling combination of chemicals tho
<-iit-tor stood on th�� outside noting the
iitato of tho barometer nnd thermometer
and waiting tiio professor's signal to
open tho door of the refrigerator. At a
most interesting point in the proceeding
lim doctor wus called away tu iittond it
woman who bad become entangled in a
tub-phone v. iro without permission from
the authorities.
This new and interesting cose distracted the mind of tbe doctor from
present business, and, after tacking a
notice on the door of the refrigerator
Unit he would return at nine p. in., he
went away, leaving the professor safely
locked np. The interest pertaining to
his bad cold would have been entirely
lost In tbo story of his strungo and startling denth but for tho fact that Mrs.
Grumble hnd lost a hat pin. She luul
been looking fer the hat pin for u week
anil hud found the point of it in the last
batch of home-made bread. Sho was
losing sleep and flesn nnder pressure of
the itioa that some of the family had
eaten the hat pin and would bo obliged
to suffer the horrors of vivisection before it could lie found. The head of the
pin was nearly as forgo ns a door knob,
nntl even a gout would havo rebelled at
its flavor; but Mrs. Grumble did not
think of this, and went around distractedly looking in every conceivable place
lor the lost hat pin.
In her wanderings, she thoughtlessly
opened the door of the refrigerator, and
the stiff and chilly form of the professor
tumbled out, upsetting her and creating a storm of consternation in her
"Lord havo mercy on usl" she
screamed.   "I do believe ho's dead."
Tho professor was to all appearance,
dead. A coroner would have pronounced him dead; and Mrs. Gruiublo
not knowing any moro than a coroner,
placed her hand to her back hair, drew
out a hut pin wilh a large knob and no
point, nnd jiibhod the cud Into the professor's left log. Now, he was not dead,
but somo of hiu faculties wero in suspension ; so, when the pin stuck him, he
kicked violently at the refrigerator and
made an incoherent remark about "trimming somebody's toe nails," and went to
sleep again.
Mrs. Grumble was greatly alarmed at
this; and, not having tho address tt a
manicure about her, she went out to
hunt up a policeman. At tho cud of an
hour she found the policeman; but, by i
that time, she had forgotten what she
wanted, and conld only think of her
trouble about tue hat pin, which sho related to him, to his great and increasing
amazement. He thought she was crazy,
and consulted his book of rules to see
what should be done in tho emergency.
Thu r-sult of it nil was that by the time
she rt liuiied tho professor was groaning
in liud under the euro of Mrs. Grumble's
favorite niece, as will be explained in its
proper place. Tho policeman, not seeing his way clear to arrest anyone, and
not being instructed to do anything
olso, went awuy as far ns the corner of
the street, where he twirled his club for
an hour and watched a hob in ti.o sidewalk, and thought how easy it could be
fixed if there was anybody in creation
| whose business it wns to fix it. Dr.
Sqnibob being absent, bis rival was
called in, presumably at the instigation
of tho favorite niece. This much is necessary to a clear understanding of the
matter, and will be read with interest
by those who like to get at the heart of
It war) also stated that whilo Mrs,
Grumble was hunting the policeman,
her favorite niece callod at the houso
and found thu professor in the deplorable state aimvo described.
Upon bur rested tho responsibility of
calling tee young doctor; hut it was un
einergonc*- thnt must bo promptly met,
and, though tbo professor thought himself tho deadly enemy of Dr.  Pilule, he
j was in   no    condition  to   object  at
I this timo, and,   after his cond tion improved, ho saw  something in tin. blue
| eyes of tho niece  that warned him to
keep  quiet.   He  did   not   fear   Mrs.
j Grumble, for ho know that, no matter
how strenuously she  might object  to
j any'proceeding,  she  would   forget all
about it the next moment, in her anxiety to find something She had lust.
i    It is to be hoped the reader now clearly understands how  Dr. Squiu.i. hup-
I pened tu call upon the professor nt this
timo.   Tlio niece was there, with her
hair in a delightful  state Of fltiffiness.
Her disposition to  antagonize Sqnibob
and favor Pilule wns increased from the
fact that Sqnibob, secure in a plethora
of patients,  always usked h.T why she
didn't comb her hair; and Pilule, with
subtle wisdom, complimented her upon
her taste in arranging it
Sqnibob lost ground here, as he deserved; uud Pilule���but that is a matter
to c insider hereafter.

glit'itel oii"'i'io.i.,1.* iironnd, sniffed
tno all', ami eaiii with a toua of contempt in his voice:
'���(Jam" or! little pills! foolishness!
Prof., wny didn't you send for me before you got so bud? They always wait
till they're dead before the;, send for
me. Thay never give tno half .-.chance.
It's a wonder I've any reputation left.
Why ui lu'i you send sooner, I nny?" .
The professor whispered from beneath
the flannels:
"I didn't semi for you, Doc. If you'd
co-no back iu decent season and unlocked the refrigerator, I'd have stood somo
chance to send for yon. I wns too stiff
to seud for any one when Rose found
nm. Sho and Pilule brought uie around
with a hot bath."
"I didn't lock it. Prof. It must have
locked itself; and as for tliut Pilule, I
can't express my opinion of him. I've
no opinion to express about Pilule.
He's too fur beneath my notice to express anything���"
"Dr. bquthob I" exclaimed Rose, in a
sweet but indignant voice, "Dr. Pilule
is my frlonu!"
"I beg pardon, Rose," replied Dr.
Sqnibob; "but it's a wonder Prof, isn't
dead from shock. Ont of a refrigerator
into a hot bath���and littlo pills, too,
and camphor and cold cream. It's
strange he isn't dead. It's lucky I
called jnst when I did. How'd yon
como to get Pilule?''
"Rose did it." whispered the professor. "She thought he was a good
"Sho thought, did she?" interrupted
Sqnibob. "What right had she to think
in this case? It's a wonder you aren't
dead.   Let's see your tongue."
"Dr. Squibob, said Roso from the
other side of the room, where she stood
with her eyes ablaze and her fluffy hair
trembling with indignation. "Dr.
Pilule is such a nice iiinu I   And he has
lots of patients���and he cures 'etu, too.
It don't become you lo criticise Dr.
Pilule���you. that lock men up and
freeze 'em to death in refrigerators.
Don't let me hear any more of it, Dr.
"Don't talk to me nbont Pilule. I
don't npprove of Pilule. Yonr uncle
might Lave been dead il I'd lieen a little
later in getting here. Let me see yonr
tongue." This latter remark wan addressed to tho professor and not to Roso.
jSobody knows wnnt Rose intended to
say after this, for Dr. Pilule had been
quietly standing near the door for some
time, and, hearing Rose's warm defence
of himself, thought il time to appear in
bis own behalf.
At sight oi Dr. Pilule, Rose went into
a spasm of crying and laughing aud fell
in an hysterical fit straight into his
arms. There is no suspicion of premeditation in this occurrence, and the only -f
etrange thing about it was* that, though
hysterics were something of a speciality
with Pilule, it took a very, very long
time for him to deal with Rose's case;
nnd, by the time he had restored her to
tranquillity and a feverish complexion,
Squibob had departed without saying a
word to anyone.
Owing to the loss of the professor's
voice, it ia difficult to obtain minute
particulars of other things that transpired: bnt neighborhood rumor says
tiuit the lovely niece nnd Dr. Pilule arrived nt bono sort of understanding
during tiie hysterical porio I, and thut
In consequence many mysterious packages have lii'r-nn to arrive ut the residence of the niece, most of which are
only suitable fur weduing presents. It

The group of mines known ns tho
North Star wns discovered in the summer of 1892, it was purchased by Mr.
D. D. Maim of Montreal, who formed
a company for tho purpose of develop-
in*; it, considerable work wns done in
the following season, but for the last
yenr it has been laying idle in consequence of the depresrtion in the money
market and the fall in silver. The
prospects are brighter this spring,
word has been received to go abend,
and in all probability we will very
soon see a number of men at work getting things into shape and building
tho wagon road from the Kooteiiny
river up to the mines, for whicli an
appropriation has been mudo by the
B.C. Government.
In the annual report of the Minister
of Mines for WOO, i, description is
given of this group, from which wc
extract the following: "The property
consisting of four 1500ft. square
claims, situate about 20 miles N.W.
of Fort Steele, being an immense body
of steel galena. A considerable amount
ol development work has been done ou
the property, the work extends over
about 450 feet of the lode, tho greatest
depth from the surface reached is '.lift.
in the main shaft, sunk at the original discovery, where the lirst body of
ore was bared by thc discoverers by
removing the overlying wash material,
the vast body of mineral run through
where the drift shews solid galena nud
carbonates for the remarkable widlh
of G5 feet was not opened out until
after the purchase of the mi no was
made. Il seems fair to conclude that
the work has shown tbe existence ol
large mineral deposits. Though such
bodies can not be looked for iu u regular width and richness throughout,
thete seems very good indications in
this case for their continuance, in
length and depth. The only regular
sampling, the results ol which I am
aware gave, silver 47.41k)-,, gold, nil;
lead, 1)7.00 per cent ; iron, li.iill per
cent; zinc, 1.90 per cent; assays of
over iii) ores have beou obtained, while
the carbonate ore appears generally to
run somewhat lower in silver, the ore
is asserted to be of thc very linest
quality for smelting. Tho mine is
within sixteen miles of tlio Kootenay
river, ou which there ure nt present
two steamboats running Tho country but ween the mine und tho river is

Most Scn.ntlonitl Trial.
London, Mny   20. -It   the case   ot
Miss   Birdie   Sutherland, tho   chorus
girl at tho Gaiety  theatre, against tho
Hon.   Dudley  Churchill  Majoribnnks
fer broach of promise ever comes into
court, it will be tlio most sensational
trial since Miss Fortescu, the actress,
won a 910,000 suit   from Lord   Car-
movie on a similar charge, Miss Sutherland is very handsome, Iieing nearly
six feet tall   and  only  eighteen years
old.     Her real nnnie is Annie Louise
Wntkins.     She   first   met  tno Hon.
Dudley   Majoribnnks at iho Prince of
Wales club.      It was a case of love at
first sight      He   proposed   and   was
accepted,     When his parents learned
cf tho affair they wore very much disturbed.     However, when  it was discovered that   Miss   Sutherland was ot
unimpeachable character. Lord Tweed-
mouth said unit it   tho   couple would
consent  not to* see each other   for a
year, and if, at the expiration of that
time, both  were of the same mind he
would not  place any   obstacle in the
way of marriage, but Mr. Majoribnnks
still haunted the Gaiety theatre.    One
night Lord  Tweedmouth  found   hiin
there nnd persuaded  hiin to leave and
the father and   son   drova away together.     Tho  services of   Sir George
Lewis  were   culled   as  mediator, but
without avail.    It is alleged thai Lord
Tweedmouth   offered     to   send   Miss
Sutherland  to the continent to study
music under the best teachers, but she
refused   the proposition.     Then  Mr.
Majoribnnks went to Canada with his
mother on a visit to the Earl of Aberdeen,    The young man did not return
with his mother to   England, but remains  in  llritish   Columbia  nud tlie
match was broken off.     Miss Sutherland then placed the case in the hands
of   a well  known  theatrical   lawyer,
who retained in her behalf Sir Edward
Clarke and yarious  oilier legal talent.

Clovor Artllic.a to Gain Advantages In
Tho Field-Itu.o. In War,
It may ho intorostlng in view of the
war now raging between China ond Japan to show a fow of tho "tricks of the
trade" ; in otlier words, a few of tho peculiar strtitogohls which have lieen successful frum time to lime In past wars.
Painpolunn was lost tt. tho Spaniards
in n curious way. Tho Kronen troops
stntliined in the district wore all allowed
to enter the town occasionally for their
provisions, mid this foraging party gradually increased In number. Ono day, on
arriving In town, they started snowballing each other, and ns tlio excitement Increased each soldier from the outsldo kept
joining in tho battle Comrades armed
rushed In apparently to share tlie sport;
but when u sufliolent number of tho
French soldiers hnd beon introduced, tho
guards at, the gales .were seized, and tho
remainder of tho army entered the town
to complete tlie conquest.
About tho sumo time tho French gained access to San Sebastian hy another
clever artillce. The general commanding
Iho French soldiers obtained permission
from the Spanish commiinilor to sond tho
Rick of his army 1 nto San Sebastian. Ho
scorns to havo had a largo number of mon
sick and in need of sen air, for, on receiving permission, ho sent upwards of 2,(XX1
to thc hospitals. . ,
They wore bandaged in ovopy conceivable way, und some had tholr arms supported by sling-. Tlie Spiitnnrds afforded
every accommodation, und ultimately allowed about 6C0 to be placed In tho citadel. Having lieen thus far successful, it
only remained for theao, presumably,
poor, dying, cripples, but otherwise
healthy soldiers, lo leave thc hospitals ono
morning, before daylight, and take possession of tho fortfflutlons���and this thoy
did before tho bewildered garrison realized that tlie soldiers that thoy hud so carefully tended wero not frlonds, but
Thc Americans onco played a noat trick
